In 2005, I published an access guide to Florida's southwest coast beaches and started this web site, BeachHunter.net. Since then, the web site has grown to over 1,500,000 page views each year. The book has sold over 1,000 printed copies and many hundreds of e-books and is now in its Second Edition, completely updated and expanded and is available on Amazon.com.
Also in 2005 I wrote an e-book on beach safety (updated regularly) which has been downloaded by over 10,000 web site visitors. I now call it my Beach Survival Guide.
From July 2007 through July 2009, I was was a contract writer for Miles Media and produced written content, web video, and radio commercials for the VisitFlorida.com website as the beaches and surf "insider." My work on the VisitFlorida web site.
In 2007, I started a blog about Florida beaches, BlogTheBeach.com, which has about 6,000 visitors each month.
In the December 2007 issue of Sarasota Magazine I was interviewed by Editor Pam Daniels about my work.
I have been quoted in Forbes magazine, USA Today, and various local newspapers on the topic of beaches.
For several years I have been a presenter at the International Seabean Symposium in Cocoa Beach, Florida on the topic of jellyfish in Florida and beach safety.
Some people confuse me with Dr. Beach (Dr. Stephen Leatherman). We are two very different people. I am on the left in the photo below taken in 2011 on Little Gasparilla Island. Dr. Beach is on the right with the hat and dolphin t-shirt.
